there backing up investors. the fed was promising that if the economy didn't inprove, don't worry, we're going to continue with this very easy monetary policy. make sure there's plenty of money. a lot of liquidity. bernanke really made people realize that this pulling back, the tapering of the fed, this almost tightening, because they're not going to be as easy as they've been, this was the warning signal this was going to happen. a lot people had been pushing this out to 2014. maybe 2015. ben bernanke made it clear. this is going to be happening potentially even this year. and, you know, they say they don't ring a bell at the top of our markets. that that's the big question and the big game you have to play when you're investing. this was almost a bell to all those investors who worried, okay, this is a massive change, this is the time we need to move. that's what's been happening here. we do look like we're going to open by 60 points but that was about half the gains we saw early this morning. >> the market got its bell rung this week. have a great friday. enjoy your weekend. >>> we move on.

, the fight that affects millions of people and could reshape the economy and job market and could reshape america's border with mexico but on top of that is a battle in many ways for the future of the republican party, immigration reform. today in the senate offered an amendment calling for 20,000 more border agents and completing a fence to beef up republican supports if the larger reform bill passes the senate, republicans in the house will support it. that, however, is a big if. dana bash is here to explain why. dana, it goes back to border security for republicans. does it look like this bill, at least as it now stands, is tough enough on boarder security to get republican support? >> reporter: it's tougher and looks like it could. it's not a question in the senate whether or not immigration reform will pass but by a lot of votes and talking to republican sources, they think that this beefing up the border security will bring maybe ten to 12 republican senators near it that wouldn't before hand. supporters say they need maybe up to 70 votes in the senate to give this issue momentum he

of the volatility is the result of good news. the 350-point plunge comes just as the government says the economy is getting better. everything from housing to jobs, to consumer spending, all showing improvement. so, why would wall street run scared from such good news? experts say, it's all because fed chair ben bernanke, basically our country's banker in chief, now wants to take the training wheels off our economy. saying because things are looking up, it's time to dial back on trillions of dollars the fed's been pouring into the markets. >> we've had training wheels on for quite some time now. and now, we're getting word that they're going to have to come off slowly. and we have to see if we can ride this bike on our own. >> reporter: but riding without that help means the cost of borrowing money to do everything from buying a house to starting a business is going up. and that spooks the stock market. and staying on that training wheels theme, traders here on wall street aren't afraid we're going to crash into a wall when the wheels come off. what they're concerned about is things could get wo
